1/Gun violence occurs in all 50 states regularly (suicides, murder, accidental discharge etc). Mass murder by assault weapons escalated when the 1994 ban expired in 2004. A 2019 study shows mass shooting fatalities were 70% less likely when that ban was in place. #MassacreMitch
2/ What the Dem Controlled House has done?
The House passed 2 gun control bills: Bipartisan Background
📌Checks Act of 2019 (H.R. 8)
📌Enhanced Background Checks Act (H.R. 112)
3/ What has the @HouseGOP and @SenateGOP done on gun control? Zilch, Nada, Squat. As y'all know Mitch McConnell has refused to bring either bill to the floor. One bill is supported by 90% of Americans. Even if it goes to the floor the @SenateGOP might not pass it. #MoscowMitch
